Stanley’s Mum and Dad were kindly given a gift voucher from a friend for a free photo shoot at Little Primrose Photography when Stanley was born. As he had been a bit poorly with reflux in the first few weeks of life, we were very flexible with timings and Stanley finally made it to the studio in Sandbach at 5 weeks old. Sometimes this can be a difficult age to photograph as babies have more awake time but Stanley was a great model and slept for a lot of his shoot. As a parent myself I completely understand how difficult it is to come out to a studio in those first few weeks of life!
We started off with some beanbag poses, Stanley was very active, checking what we were doing and looking at the camera. We got some beautiful images of Stanley’s absolutely gorgeous eyes while he reclined in comfort.
Stanley loved being snuggled up in my little baby bed as most babies seem to! He enjoyed being wrapped up tight and fell straight to sleep. He looks so sweet with my little hand felted teddy bear, one of my own recent projects. His bonnet is handmade in mohair from The Yarn Owl Nest, a great UK based knitter.
The first few weeks and months of a baby’s life are so different to any other time. Their tiny fingers and toes will never be this small again! Make sure to capture every moment.
A newborn shoot is a great way to preserve these precious memories and a gift voucher makes a fantastic gift for new parents either as a baby shower gift or when baby is born. If you know anyone who’s expecting a baby in 2017 and you’d like to purchase a gift voucher, contact Lisa now!
